Summary This book is an invaluable resource that provides an overview of all aspects of the care of patients with haemophilia, covering how to assess both bleeding children and adults, Haemophilia A and B, molecular basis of the disease, the role of factors in coagulation, epidemiology, pharmacokinetics, and treatment of inhibitors. There will also be a section on musculoskeletal aspects of haemophilia as well as newer developments such as gene therapy and rare bleeding disorders. The features of this book are: it is the only up-to-date definitive reference source on hemophilia; it is essential for all those managing hemophilia patients; it contains a detailed guidance on assessment, diagnosis, management and treatment; it contains advice for everyday clinical questions; and is edited by three of the world's leading experts on hemophilia
